Controversy at the Rellys for second consecutive year
For the second year in a row, controversy reigns at the Relly Awards, as Regis Philbin
again is shut out in the "Best Regis" category - again at the hands of a "Saturday Night
Live" veteran. This year, comedian and actor Jimmy Fallon took home the prestigious
"Best Regis" Golden Stool.|
Philbin accepted the award on behalf of the absent Fallon, but shocked the
Relly audience by reading a purported letter from Fallon, essentially passing
the award to Philbin. The document later was revealed to be a fraud. After
the broadcast, Philbin asserted that "Next year will be the year that regis is
In another shocking twist, porcine princess Miss Piggy eked out a win in
the "Best Non-Human Guest" category, triumphing over such competition as
Mariah Carey's dog Jack, "Star Wars" superstar Chewbacca and Barney the Purple
Dinosaur. Singing superstar Carey attempted to call in during the Relly
taping to express her disappointment over Jack being passed over in favor of
the popular pig.
Another unhappy nominee was talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who lost the
"Best New Co-Host" Relly to "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest. Kimmel is
rumored to be readying a rebuttal for air on tonight's "Jimmy Kimmel Live".
Philbin and fellow host Kelly Ripa were the biggest winners on Friday, and
the only nominees to walk away with multiple Golden Stools (two and three,
respectively), while cast of "Everybody Loves Raymond" won in the "Funniest
Guest" category. "American Idol's" Bo Bice accepted his "Best Reality Guest"
award live via satellite from Nashville, and Backstreet Boys Kevin Richardson,
AJ McLean and Howie Dorough checked in from Los Angeles to receive their Relly
for "Favorite Music Guest".

by Dionne005 from USA|
Your statement is weird. I love it when Mariah does that. And no I don't know all the songs. Also I'm a big Michael Jackson fan and I don't know all his songs. Even Michael Jackson ask do you remember this one when he takes it back to the J5 era. People here need to calm down. Also I don't know if I said this but I think it's adorable when Mariah s... read more

Thanks for getting what I mean PJW, and I never really thought about it that way, so that's a good point. And MimiLamb, what I really mean is that I have never seen an artist of her stature ask something like that. You would rarely or never hear Whitney, Celine, Michael, Madonna or Janet ever ask that during their concerts. Those are people on Mari... read more

||More on "Do you know this song?" (46,578)
by PJW from The U.K.|
What I meant to write in the last post (but forgot) was that I view Mariah's "do you know this song" thing in the same vein as the onstage diva antics. Or one time it really didn't connect for me was when she performed "Just be good to me" and she does that. "C'mon, everybody get up - get up - and you. Get up." Really, it's all banter to keep the c... read more
